Crop tops, maxi skirts, fruits, prints and hats.. I gathered those colourful and cheering items on my wishlist for this summer. I wear a lot of black, grey and green.. and it’s about time to start wearing some colours and prints again!
Please, please, please make the summer start already.. can’t stand this cold and rain anymore.
It ain’t winter anymore, but since it still feels and looks like it is, I can totally share some inspirational photo’s for the ‘colder’ spring and summer days. These women here got style! I love the ‘add’ of the fabric on the jeans jackets. I have two vintage ones my self now, so for sure going to DIY one of the jackets myself like this.
What a carpet can do to your interior.. and not only interior but exterior as well! I enjoy watching these images over and over. Guess I need to start saving up for a couple of nice carpets like these. And maybe a big exotic plant like these two in the 1st image as well!
Recently I came a cross some great sounds while browsing the web for new music. I randomly started a song, while doing other stuff at the same time… And this one song stopped me from working and caught my attention.
What I say in my imagination while listening to this song?
Motor bikes, persian carpets, dessert sand, guitars and men wearing leather jackets… (no I had not seen the album cover yet at that moment!)
It’s the artist Omara Bombino I’m talking about. He’s an internationally acclaimed Tuareg guitarist and singer-songwriter from Agadez, Niger. His music is sung in the Tuareg language of Tamashek.
His latest album is called ‘Nomad’. An album with the classic cultural sounds from the sahara with raw electric guitars. The fact that it’s African/Arabic music wasn’t the only reason why it caught my attention. The sound of the guitars had something familiar.. something ‘Black Keys’ like. And so I started reading articles about this artist and found out his 2nd album Nomad (1st solo album is called Agadez) was signed by the record label Nonesuchrecords and he teamed up with Dan Auerbach, better know as vocalist and guitarist of ‘The Black Keys’. That explains a lot!
Although Bombino sings in a language we don’t speak or understand, the songs are really catchy with an up beat tempo and great sound.
A real home is different from all those beautiful interiors you find in f.e. catalogs and magazines.
Although I would love to have a neat and calm house like those styled photographed interiors, I really like these pictures shown under here that I collected. These interiors feel like home. You can see how it’s cozy and alive.
Many different colours, furniture that’s not all perfectly matchy matchy, and the amount of stuff people actually have.
I really like stuff or furniture having its own spot or place in the house so I know where to find it, and if it’s always there, it’s not distracting. But putting only a chair, table, lamp and floor carpet in a living room won’t make me happy. Yes it’s neat and calm.. and it gives my air to sit down and relax.. but I prefer coziness and a certain of colour over that.
Yay! Yesterday I moved to my new apartment together with my friend Mmarlie. Soon I’ll share some photo’s with you how it all looks like. But first we need to make it a pretty house (there’s so much rubbish, random stuff and boxes everywhere!) How? By pimping some of our furniture. And so I went searching for some inspirational DIY’s.
Spray-paint always works. You can add more colour in your interior by just adding some small coloured accessories or just spray-paint items, like flower pots, table-legs, photo frame’s etc.
We have quite some space to stall are accessories. With 2 sides of the house being fully glass, we have lots of light. In front of all the windows are boxes placed over the heatings, so we can even sit on them, chill by the window and stall out my pots, vases, candles, plants… and so on! I collected some other fun and easy DIY’s for the interior.
